Pinch yourself when you finally stand in front of Uluru, Australia's most recognisable natural icon and culturally significant for the Anangu people.
Located 462 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is home to the world-famous Uluru/Ayers Rock and the 32 weathered rock domes known as Kata Tjuta/The Olgas. The sight of these extraordinary ancient natural wonders glowing and appearing to change colour at sunrise or sunset is an unforgettable natural show.
Explore Uluru/Ayers Rock by taking to the skies in a helicopter, or up close from the walking track at its base, or climb onto the back of a camel to circumnavigate it. Learn more about the local flora, fauna, bush tucker, ancient paintings and the Dreamtime stories of this Anangu sacred site on an Aboriginal tour. The Anangu people are Uluru's traditional custodians and have lived in the area for at least 22,000 years. Stop in at the Cultural Centre to purchase their distinctive art, or watch craft demonstrations.
Ancient and monumental, Kata Tjuta/The Olgas soars above the desert. Challenge yourself to the 7.4-kilometre Valley of the Winds walk for spectacular views over the desert plains. Ayers Rock Resort, the park's sole accommodation option, offers a choice of apartments, a luxury wilderness camp, hotel, backpacker rooms or campground accommodation.
